"A 1/6.9' imager - This is not a typo"

I think there *is* a typo there...

Given the other thread on lowest cost IP66 cameras, it appears you are paying for the Pelco name here. Not saying it is not worth it, but the 'low cost' aspect is certainly relative.

Many midrange/high end phones are now using 1/3" and even 1/2" (Nokia Pureview 808) sensors. 1/6.9" seems very stingy on Pelco's part.

My concern is that the potentially very poor/very noisy low light performance will significantly impact Pelco's reputation - especially in the small business market - ans especially to new customers of the Pelco brand (and it is most likely that most of the consumers of this line of products will be new customers).

By the way - what is the MSRP?

MSRP is as follows:

IL10-XY where X=B=Bullet, X=D=Dome, Y=A=24V, Y=P=POE

  • IL10-BA : 413
  • IL10-BP : 438
  • IL10-DA : 447
  • IL10-DP : 471

Per the Spec Sheet:

Sensitivity f/2.0
Color (33 ms) 3.0 lux, autoswitching
Color (200 ms) 0.5 lux, autoswitching

I am bias on this product, so I will keep my opinions aside. But I do have a question, in your review you pair it against the Axis M30, while I am not familiar with the Axis line, this doesn't seem to be a comparable product. The axis alternative to this product would be the M1104. What was the reason you thought it would compete with the M30 series over the M1104?
